Eating well is a way of life
Here at Neighbourhood Wine we believe in seasonality, simplicity and making reference to traditional cooking. Our aim is to take the best produce offered at any particular time of the year and turn it into something beautiful to enjoy.
Head chef Almay Jordaan grew up on a farm outside of Cape Town, South Africa, where the seasons played a large part in what the family ate. That practice and the philosophy behind it has driven her approach to food, produce and cooking ever since. Provenance and sustainability are very important to us and both are integral in our kitchen.
All enjoyed with a wine
Our wine list sourced by Simon Denman shows a particular interest in low-interference winemaking principles and endeavours to couple this with the best of what classic wine regions from both the old world and new have to offer. Our aim is to create an ever-changing, constantly-growing list highlighting different regions, varieties and vintages across the globe. With this in mind the selection tends towards championing wines of a more minimal intervention, lo-fi approach. We believe this allows the provenance and vintage of the wine to shine through. This practice of working with an international range of artisanal winemakers who typically produce wine in smaller quantities, allows us the flexibility to create a diverse and dynamic list.
The list encompasses the most exciting of what we think local winemakers are producing right now, as well as international wines (especially from the Jura) that stand out from the everyday.
We also offer 20-odd wines by the glass across multiple styles and varieties that are both enjoyable to drink, and complement the ever-changing food menu. With around 800 wines on the list at any given time, there’s always something new and interesting to try.
